I try converting a post I wrote just in the classic Wordpress editor, but all it does is turn it into HTML.

Any ideas on how to make it show blocks rather than coding?

You need to turn off your classic editor plugin ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Yea I apologize. I did deactivate classic, then followed the instructions to convert to blocks.

One thing I thought about is would a theme mess with the conversion to Blocks?

No, themes by default now use the block editor ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Any time you have a classic block inside the block editor once you click on it there's a big "convert to blocks" button at the top just like in the video and it's easy does it ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Hmm, Iโ€™ll have to try to screen record for you and show you what I mean.

I did exactly as the video and it shows html blocks.

Just take a couple screenshots ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
Are you sure you're dealing with a classic editor block?

THANK YOU!๐Ÿ˜Š

You're very welcome!

Since creating content through the Hubs and publishing straight to the site, I've noticed that it is a classic editor which donโ€™t look good to me, so I convert to blocks. Thanks for another great training though, I am getting into a habit of saving these short but sweet videos ๐Ÿ˜Š

Glad you're enjoying them!
